    preLoadMovie question...

    vooboo13
      When you use the preLoadMovie function to load a MIAW, can you use the URL of the movie in the quotes? For example:

      on prepareMovie
      preLoadMovie "@::::introduction:using_lessons:using_lessons"
      end

      Or does the movie have to be in the same folder as the host movie?

          The movie you wish to preload *doesn't* have to be in the same folder,
          and yes, you can use the pathname operator '@' to build a relative path
          based on the current movie's location
          The relative path you give above would look up 3 folders from the
          current movie's location for a folder named "introduction" and inside
          that for a folder named "using_lessons" and inside that folder for a
          Director /file/ named "using_lessons"
